Havanese Rescue Inc (HRI) is an independent charitable organization that has rescued Havanese and Havanese-mix dogs in need since 2004.

While the Havanese Club of America is our parent club, HRI is not exclusively affiliated with any breed club locally or nationally.

We depend on financial support and volunteer involvement from regional and national Havanese Breed Clubs and the general public, who are willing to assist in the rescue and re-homing of Havanese dogs.

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards in responsible rescue. While our mission is to rescue purebred Havanese, sometimes we are left to do visual and hands-on IDs when pedigree and papers are unavailable. These decisions are not always 100% accurate. HRI prides itself on supportive relationships with our foster and adoptive families. Collaborative efforts between HRI and Havanese Breed Clubs help provide a safety net for our beloved breed.

Havanese Rescue Inc. does not buy dogs from auctions, puppy mills, breeders, or owners. All our funds are utilized for the rescue, care, and medical treatment of dogs surrendered by owners, shelters, or strays. Puppy mill breeding is a horror for all breeds. Buying from auctions increases demand and encourages puppy mills and BYB breeders by supplying a market for their mistakes.
